Please note - due to the disruption to garden waste collections during 2022/2023, subscriptions due to end on 31 March 2023 have been extended to 30 April 2023.
The council offers an opt-in garden waste collection service every fortnight for residents who want one.
You can now subscribe to the service for the period 1 May 2023 to 30 April 2024.

How the service works
The fortnightly service costs £40 per bin for the year. Please note, we suspend the service for a short period over Christmas and New Year. In 2023-24 this period will cover at least the dates 25 December 2023 to 5 January 2024 inclusive.
You can opt-in at any time, but there are no discounts for part-year subscriptions.
You can pay by credit or debit card at any time of the day, using our secure website. Once you have signed up, allow up to two weeks for us to send your bin sticker and arrange to empty your bin. We will not send stickers before mid-April 2023.
When you opt-in you will receive a bin sticker, which you will need to stick to the body of your bin at the rear, below the handle. This sticker will be unique to you, and will match our records.
We only empty green garden waste bins that display a sticker.
Garden waste collection rounds
Your garden waste bin may be emptied on a different day of the week to your black rubbish and blue-lid recycling bins. You may need to check your next bin day.
